Time Limitation on Direct Subsidized Loan Eligibility for First-Time Borrowers: For first time Federal student loan borrowers on or after July 1, 2013, there is a limit on the time you can receive a Direct Subsidized loan. Subsidized loan eligibility will be limited to 150 percent of the published length of your academic program. After you have received Direct Subsidized loans for your maximum eligibility period, you will only be eligible to borrow Direct Unsubsidized loans. Also, if you continue to be enrolled in an undergraduate program after receiving the maximum Direct Subsidized Loans, you will be responsible for the interest that accrues on your subsidized loans. Loan fees on the Federal Direct Loan program are increasing. First disbursements made on or after December 1, 2013 will be assessed new loan fees of 1.072 percent for Direct Subsidized Loans and Direct Unsubsidized Loans and 4.288 percent for Direct PLUS loans (both parent and graduate student PLUS Loans).
